I thought today I should show the card I made with one of the backgrounds I created and showed on Saturday, if you missed the post click HERE to see it. The card was made for Mr ND's sisters anniversary and was given yesterday so no worries about her seeing it early!
As you all know I started on the background, this was made using Cosmic Shimmer Silk glitter, a mask and a double sided adhesive sheet. I used three colours of glitter Antique Rose, Pale Bronze & Lavender and an old mask form That special Touch (so sorry don't know which one!) . I then stamped over the glitter, which is the astonishing thing about the silk glitter it dires completely falt and polishes up allowing you to stamp and emboss over it!
To make the card to house the background I wanted to keep the colours bright especially as Sancha loves bright colours and has a wonderful way with them. Therefore I had to pick out the royal purple and off set it with the CE soft Gold card. I matted the image onto a wide sheet of purple and made a Polished silk glitter border by using double sided adhesive tape to make a square frame, I added the glitter, Sahara Gold, and polished it to a shine.
Next I added a couple of layers of soft gold and royal purple to make the square card base. I felt that while I loved the background I had created it was a little too stark on its own so I ran a length of satin ribbon down the right hand side and added a soft gold die cut from the Spellbinders Gold elements one corner die. The sentiment panel is made using the centre oval die form the Sue Wilson Austrian collection background die on a hand cut mat in the same soft gold. The sentiment is stamped in bright gold detail embossing powder and is finished with a messy bow and large silver dazzler.
A bright card for me but loved by the recipients!
